Laptop Reimbursement Policy and Procedure

CECP offers a one-time laptop reimbursement to support student success in college coursework.  Student MUST have funds remaining in his/her $1,900 semester tuition voucher after all tuition, fees, and books have been deducted in order to be reimbursed for a laptop.  If you do not have enough funds to be reimbursed, you can choose to be reimbursed for the amount you have remaining in your tuition voucher OR, be reimbursed the following semester if you have funds then. 


Example:  Student is eligible for a $200 reimbursement for the laptop, but only has $100 remaining in their tuition voucher.  Student can choose to take the $100 reimbursement now (the remaining $100 would be forfeited), or the student can wait until the following semester, and be reimbursed for this laptop at the full $200 amount if there are funds left in that semester’s voucher.
